Penrith have named skipper Matt Moylan at five-eighth for Sunday's clash with Canterbury, as they look to plug the hole left by Bryce Cartwright's injury.

Moylan's switch from fullback means promising youngster Dylan Edwards will wear the No.1 jersey, while Mitch Rein will make his Panthers debut as starting hooker with Peter Wallace out injured.

The Bulldogs will welcome back their State of Origin stars David Klemmer, Josh Jackson and Brett Morris, with all three named to start despite the short turnaround.

Skipper James Graham has also been named after shrugging off an injury concern.

Tuimoala Lolohea is set to start in the halves for the Wests Tigers in their clash with St George Illawarra, his first game for the club less than a week after switching from the Warriors.

Tigers halfback Luke Brooks will spend another week on the sidelines with a hamstring complaint, but forward Chris Lawrence is set to return from a knee injury.

Dragons captain Gareth Widdop has been named on an extended bench as he vies to return from injury, while NSW stars Josh Dugan and Tyson Frizzell have also been named in a 22-man squad.

All six of Brisbane's Origin players have been selected in the starting 13 for on Saturday night's showdown with the Sydney Roosters.

While the Broncos welcome back Darius Boyd, Corey Oates, Anthony Milford, Sam Thaiday, Matt Gillett and Josh McGuire, the Roosters will be boosted by Blake Ferguson, Mitchell Pearce, Dylan Napa, Boyd Cordner and Aidan Guerra.

Brisbane hooker Andrew McCullough is back in the team after concussion had kept him out of last week's loss to the Warriors.

Despite being scratched from Queensland duty due to injury, Johnathan Thurston has been named on an extended bench for North Queensland's clash with Gold Coast, who have named an unchanged 17 for Saturday night's match.

Melbourne prop Jesse Bromwich makes his return after serving a two-game suspension over his part in a cocaine scandal while on New Zealand Test duty.
